Taxi Dancing Lyrics

Well she started out, just to be a dancer
Gonna make her livin' dancin' in the Broadway shows
So she hitchhiked cross the country from Pasaroba to the Big Red Apple
Where your dreams are made, your debts must be paid on time

I'll hold you close, Taxi Dancer
And I'll listen to how you outgrew your dreams, how they faded away
I'll hold you close, Taxi Dancer
We can pretend this floor is the Broadway stage

Well she wasn't used to livin' in the city
So she took a job cleanin' up as a maid at the Grammercy Park Hotel
And all her auditions, no, didn't turn out so pretty
So she took a job dancin' at the bar down a street as well

I'll hold you close, Taxi Dancer
And I'll listen to how you outgrew your dreams, how they faded away
I'll hold you close, Taxi Dancer
We can pretend this floor is the Broadway

Well I don't know how long or how far her fortune did take her
But I heard she sits alone drunk downtown on 42nd Street
And sometimes an old Butch will slip a quarter into the jukebox
And she'll stagger to the bar and dance with that girl for free

I'll hold you close, Taxi Dancer
And I'll listen to how you outgrew your dreams, how they faded away
I'll hold you close, Taxi Dancer
We can pretend this floor is the Broadway stage

I'll hold you close
I'll hold you close

I'll hold you close, Taxi Dancer
Faded away
Hold you close, Taxi Dancer
Faded away
Hold you close, Taxi Dancer
Faded away
